The Store will open this year as soon as possible at 10am until 12noon - depending on Covid restrictions. It is usually open every Sunday excepting a winter break during December and January. The Store is run by David Bagon, and is manned each week by volunteer members of the Society. Helpers are requested to assist in bagging up small quantities of bird food from the bulk supplies in quiet periods during their duties. Please do not handle bulk chemicals and fertilisers as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as gloves and in some cases a dust mask must be worn.
Thanks to all those who have volunteered to help man the Store. Anyone else who would like to join the rota for manning the Store on Sunday mornings, contact Gary Harding. It only involves about 3 mornings during the year and you will start by being on with an experienced member to show you the ropes. Most helpers find it enjoyable.
It is recommended that those on duty each week contact one another a few days before to ensure that no-one is left on their own running the Store.
There will be a plentiful supply of bird food (7 varieties) in stock - plus of course composts, fertilisers, pesticides, and garden sundries.
Spare Show Schedules, Weeders Digests and replacement Yearbooks are available here too.
On sale are a wide range of garden products, chemicals and sundries; including granular, slow release and liquid fertilisers (both general and high potash) and a variety of composts, canes and stakes. A best seller these days is peanuts and seed for birds.
Most items required for the gardening season are available, including food for the birds. A lot of the materials are available in bags broken down from bulk supplies ensuring best value low prices. Any proposals for additional items should be put to David Bagon or discussed with Peter Hordern.
